    Resistant Depression
    An_251176 posted:
    I have treatment resistant depression. For the past 30 years, I have been on literally every medication out there. The have been times when I have felt better but it doesn't last long. I have been in group therapy for nearly 3 years, had about 60 relapses, had ECT, which didn't work. It has got to the stage, where I would rather be dead then g through this hell. I simply can't take it anymore. I don't think it will ever go away and I simply cannot imagine living many more years with is the most terrible thing in the world!.
